THE IRON INDUSTRY.
vaara district 'supplied about 1,260,000 tons, the Gellivare region about 1,000,000 tons, and Grangesberg about 600,000 tons. Germany takes the greater part of this ore, but England, Belgium and other countries receive a certain quantity.

In Fig. XXIX-A I have combined the districts before described and have shown (1) the extreme north, a forest-covered, unsettled country, producing ore alone; (2) the extreme south, producing-coal alone, and the southern central portion, making a small amount of iron; (3) the central district west of Stockholm—in which the iron industry of Sweden is centered.
Some readers may inquire concerning Norway, so it may be well to say that there is no iron made in Norway, and the amount has always been small; but a great deal of Swedish Lancashire product has been taken to that country worked into finished articles and exported under the name of "Norway iron." This term may now be a fixture in the trade, but has no place in a metallurgical treatise. In Table XXIX-B is a list of the principal steel works in Sweden, showing their location and production of steel in 1900.
